The purpose of the American Guild of Organists is to promote the organ in its historic and evolving roles, to encourage excellence in the performance of organ and choral music, and to provide a forum for mutual support, inspiration, education, and certification of Guild members. The Albuquerque Chapter has around 45 to 50 members, living mainly throughout the Albuquerque – Santa Fe corridor, with some members in smaller communities in the northern mountains. However, membership is not exclusive to these geographical areas.
